Within this book the author wants to shed light on the experience of illness and disease accompanied by discrimination and (self-) stigmatization, particularly in the context of HIV and AIDS from a medical anthropological and public health viewpoint. The results of six outstanding interviews conducted will be presented in order to underline the experiences of HIV-seropositive women in Tanzania, illustrating the tremendous impact that accompanies the diagnosis of having a disease and being positive on the lives of HIV-positive women.
